Not only did the St. Joseph, Mo., native headline Sun Valley's July 4 ice show opener, but he will remain with the cast most of the summer.
"This place is so magical,” he [Bradley] said. “It's outdoors, it's surrounded by this beautiful scenery. You can't help but fall in love with it.”
This summer's Sun Valley on Ice will feature core artists, including Darlin Baker, Jumpin' Joe Sabovcik, Natalia Zaitseva, Brent Bommentre, Craig Heath and Joel Dear, said Kim Navarro, who skated with Bommentre at the world championships in 2010 before retiring from competition.
Bradley will skate two routines, including a spoof on "Harry Potter." Other numbers include hits from such Broadway musicals as "West Side Story" and "Cats."
And one act will have a fire dance featuring Ashley Clark.
"It can't be beat," said skater Jeremy Barrett, former U.S. national champion. "As skaters, we often skate in ice boxes with no windows. It's so good to come back to skate under the stars in a place that's so beautiful. And it must be amazing for the audience as well."
